THE STORY: After the sudden death of his sister, Marvin turns to his girlfriend, a therapist and a co-worker for comfort, only to find himself alone in his grief. When he loses his cell phone, Marvin falls for the mysterious woman who has procured his phone. Marvin, however, soon finds himself embroiled in a dark underworld when a threatening detective shows up at his office, making it clear that the mysterious woman on the phone is not who she says is.
"A play for the electronic post-9/11 age by a prizewinning, surreal writer who captures well the absurd elements of contemporary life."—Seattle Times. "A taut and gripping contemporary techno-thriller—the kind of tale Hitchcock might spin were he alive in our electronic age." — "Exceptionally well written." —WBEZ, Chicago Public Radio.
